Discrimination faced by Mumbaikars...

If the housing societies in Mumbai (Bombay) are only meant for families (married couples), then the government of Maharashtra should make marriage compulsory in the state/city.
Or else the government should tell its citizens where will Unmarried, Divorcees, Bachelors, Spinsters live in the city of skyscrapers or is Bombay only for those who have families.
This is one of the greatest mental blocks of Mumbaikars, who otherwise want to bask in the FALSE HALO of Cosmopolitanism.
This disease (of not giving apartments to Bachelors, Muslims, etc on rent) is specially prevalent in housing societies where the Gujaratis, Marathis and North Indians (to some extent) abound; while the rest of the population is more or less okay with the concept.
The government of Maharashtra should take this matter seriously and devise laws to eradicate this malice ASAP, so that BOMBAY (and its suburbs) becomes free of discrimination based on Marital Status, Religion, etc. Or else the Honourable Supreme Court of India should step in, and give directions to the state or central governments -- so that the fundamental rights of its citizens enshrined in the constitution of India is not violated.

Two injured in low-intensity blast in Pune
[Editor: Mr.Arun Jaitley's maiden budget was getting thumbs up by the stock market participants; suddenly some people thought to disrupt the rhythm of the market so that the newspaper headlines tomorrow do not scream that NDA government's budget gets 400-plus points salute. Now tell me what to do with these elements? If a cult is causing perennial problems, then I think the time has come to think seriously, whether to ban this cult or not; at least in India. We heard enough of lies and bluffs, saying that it propagates peace. However, the reality is different, therefore we  need to act fast, before it is too late. It is not possible to control an organized movement by putting "Rasogollas" in every mouth. The action has to be swift, decisive, and exemplary]

Pune, July 10, 2014: Two persons were injured when an explosive placed on a motorcycle went off near a police station here on Thursday afternoon, police said.

The "low-intensity" blast occurred near Pharaskhana Police Station close to the famous Dagdusheth Halwai Temple in the busy Budhwar Peth area around 2:30 pm.

Top police officials and Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad have reached the spot, while forensic experts are scouring the area to collect evidence, sources said, adding the condition of those injured, who were yet to be identified, was not serious.

Senior police and ATS officials refused to give any further details about the incident.

Pune was rocked by four coordinated low-intensity explosions on August 1, 2012 which had left one person injured.

The city had come on the terror radar for the first tine when 17 people were killed and around 60 injured in a powerful blast at German Bakery, one of Pune's favourite eateries, on February 13, 2010.

Home-grown terror outfit Indian Mujahideen was blamed for both the attacks.

Meanwhile, a team from Mumbai Anti-terrorism Squad has been rushed to assist an ATS team already stationed in Pune in the probe.

Sources in Mumbai ATS said it was too early to conclude whether Thursday's explosion was the handiwork of terrorists.
